Pink Apple Festival Award – Léa Pool Feature film
In the early twentieth century, after the death of her mother, the young Manuela is admitted to a boarding school for girls where the headmistress imposes a rigid discipline. Manuela (Romy Schneider) projects all her affection onto Miss Elisabeth von Bernburg (Lilli Palmer), the only supervisor to show her any kindness. At a party where alcohol flows a little freely, Manuela creates a scandal by loudly proclaiming her love for Miss von Bernburg. The film is based on a play from Christa Winsloe – a remake of the film from 1931.
